Whats the best storage option for the paint that isn't used to get it to last the longest?
Add a few drops of water to the top and close the vial, don't shake it, just let it be.
Next time you open the vial just spill the excess of water if there's any and stir the paint ,and use it.

Which color would you recommended?
Green and Yellow have the best balance between day color and glow.
Their color is very "artificial" so it's easy to discern it from the background.

Orange and Red have better day color than glow quality.

I'll leave aqua and blue for other projects, blue colors tend to recede.

OK, let me first say that I am a newbie. That said, I am very interested in seeing how it actually would look at the range, but am uncertain which colors would be best.

I am thinking it may help me with my aiming. Any thoughts on that?

So, what colors would work best that will work both indoor and outdoor?

Thanks

I received my glow on this weekend. I applied it on my XDm and my 1911. Seems like pretty cool stuff but I don't know how long the glow really lasts.

Has anyone in SE Connecticut tried this?? If so Please PM me. I'm willing to pay for an hour of range time just to look down the sights of your gun.
